updates updates updates

Here are some renders that show the improvements done on the packaging for the milk and the coffee. The graphic design is not 100% ready yet. I’m still refining and fixing some details in it. Also, this morning I met with Jonathan and he already had done the glass part for the coffee packaging which is very simple. Unfortunately I forgot to bring the camera so I don’t have any pictures that show their progress.

Here are some images that show a few memories from my childhood in the farms and some additional images that show different views of Carinthia and La Florentina.

Glass bottle’s update

Yesterday I went to the Drayton Glass Works and met with Jonathan again. This time we started working on the production of the bottle and I learned the process of how to blow glass step by step; it was pretty amazing. I believe Jonathan has a show in Jacksonville so he had to go away for the weekend. This means I’d have to meet with him again next week to see the progress and hopefully get the final ones.

From paper to glass

Drayton Glass Works is a full-time glass blowing studio and gallery located in the historic Starland art district of Savannah. It’s owned and operated by Jonathan Poirier. This shop is specialized in art and custom glass pieces, as well as production pieces crafted in the Swedish style.

very hot.

On Tuesday I went to Drayton Glass Works and gave the renders of my design for the milk bottle to Jonathan, who’s the CEO/President of the company. We talked about the dimensions of the bottle and planned its manufacturing process.

I’ll meet with him again this morning and we’ll be able to work on the making of the bottles, hopefully everything will come out as planned. (fingers crossed).

Molas

The Costume worn by the Kuna woman consists of a multicolor blouse, that has the generic name of “Mola”, it is made by hand by the Indians, with attractive decorative motifs of biologic character, geometric design, mythological beings and scenes from daily life. They also wear a skirt that is made from about three yards of fabric tied at their waist. Under this one, wrapped around waist, is a smaller skirt that they use as underwear. A colorful scarf decorates the garment and is placed on the head whenever they go out of the house.

Milk bottle concept

This is the concept that I’ve designed for the glass bottle that would represent the packaging for Carinthia’s milk. There are two sizes, the large one (1quart) and the small personal size (281mL). They are designed with a “square” corner so that they would easily fit together in stacks of four.

“the best container available, glass.”

These are links that take you to some Dairy Farms that currently use glass as the material for their milk bottles. Shatto Milk Company, published this statement at the die line blog (http://www.thedieline.com/blog/2008/05/shatto-milk-com.html) about why they still use glass.
“We at Shatto Milk Company have decided to provide our milk in glass bottles. The reasons for this decision are very simple. First, the glass bottle tends to keep milk colder, and colder milk is more desirable. Second, glass bottles are environmentally friendly. Our glass bottles can be washed and reused as many times as they are returned. Thus, recycling and reusing our bottles lowers the amount of material dumped in area landfills on a daily basis. Third, unlike paper cartons or plastic, glass imparts no foreign odor or flavor. Fourth, glass bottles are most notable in history for containing farm fresh milk from the local family farm, and that is exactly what you are getting from us. Let there be no doubt – our product is different – it is handled with the utmost care and packaged in the best container available, glass.”
